SS19: Additive Manufacturing
Summary: Additive manufacturing (AM), also called 3D-printing, is a new way to produce engineering structures. The aim of this special session will be to review ongoing research in this area. The session will provide a forum for the dissemination of knowledge and exchange of ideas in order to make use of innovations and advances gained in the field of additive manufacturing. Research in the field of AM ranges from materials (e.g. plastics, steel, concrete, glass, timber, bricks, clay, paper), to production methods (powder-, film- or filament-based), structural and topology optimisation, design methods, as well as strategies for monitoring, quality management and production. Researchers on all these aspects are invited to submit contributions. Papers on experimental, numerical and/or analytical research are welcome.
